For the purpose of contests,what exactly constitutes a landscape, scenic or nature photography.
John A. Lind
This can vary greatly by contest, especially the "landscape" definition. Ask 50 photographers what a "landscape" is and you'll get 50 different definitions. You will need to read the complete rules for a specific contest to see if there is a definition. If there aren't any, then ask for a clarification from the sponsor/organizer of the contest. If, after all that, you don't get a very clear answer, then take what clues you can from the entire list of categories. The only time I've seen "scenic" used is when there's no separate categories for landscapes and architecturals and they are lumped together under that name. Also, if you can view a prior contest from the same organizer or sponsor, then look at what is in each of the categories. This can also give you an idea of how a particular contest categorizes the photographs.
Hope this helps a little.
